Although he’s having a rough patch in his career at the current moment Darren Till is still an exciting fighter to watch. The Englishman has been training in Sweden with promotional hotshot Khamzat Chimaev and hopefully the Russian Born wrestler will help Till turn this rough  patch around. Let’s face it though all of Till’s losses have been to killers at the top of their game so if he picks his next opponent carefully we think that he will get back into the win column sooner rather than later.

Till was born on Christmas Eve in 1992 in Liverpool, England. Till would end up getting in tussels, and would eventually find himself in a training room studying the “art of eight limbs,” Muay Thai. Till would soon find himself dropping out of school to focus on the art full time. He’d start fighting Muay Thai professionally and would later switch to training MMA at 17. Till would end up getting stabbed at a party after confronting a group of men. Till was advised to leave England and move to Brazil to train with Team Kaobon coach. Till would end up fighting for Astra Fight Team in Balneário Camboriú where he’d spend three years and have a child in Brazil. Till would later return to England.

Till made his Professional MMA debut in February of 2013 when he faced Luciano Oliveira Ribeiro he’d win the bout via Unanimous Decision. Muriel Giassi would be next for the young man from Liverpool. Till would win the bout by TKO (Punches.) Less than a month later he’d face Junior Dietz winning by TKO (Punches.) Paulo Batista would be next for Till he’d win the fight by KO (Punch.) Pedro Keller de Souza would be next in the Sparta MMA promotion, Till would win the fight by Knockout moving his record to a perfect 5-0. Till would win his next seven fights before making it to the UFC.

Till would make his UFC debut in May of 2015 against Wendell de Oliveira winning the Bout by Knockout. He’d then face Nicholas Dalby in a bout in Dublin Ireland the fight would end in a Majority Draw. Till would then earn a unanimous decision victory against Jessin Ayari. He’d then face Bojan Veličković winning the bout again by Unanimous Decision moving his record to an almost perfect 15-0-1. He’d then face MMA Veteran Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone. Till would win the bout by TKO (Punches.) Till would then face Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson and Till would get the nod from all the judges he’d then drop two in a row to Tyron Woodlet and Jorge Masvidal. He’d get back in the win column when he faced off against Kelvin Gastelum. Till would then drop two more fights to Robert Whittaker and Derek Brunson.

Till is one half of the ‘Smesh Bros’ we can’t to see Till return to the Cage as soon as possible.
